In a story published on the front page Oct. 23 in the White Mountain Independent entitled “Forest Service declines to comment on dead horses investigation,” there were two errors. Steve Johnson’s correct title is Information Assistant, Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests, Supervisor’s Office. Heber resident and Heber Wild Horse Preservation Alliance member, Robin Crawford, spoke to Forest Service Law Enforcement officer, John Lopez and Regional Patrol Commander, U.S. Forest Service Southwest Region, Brian Webb.
The story incorrectly stated that Val Cecama-Hogsett of Citizens Against Equine Slaughter (CAES) spoke to the aforementioned individuals. The Independent did not speak with Lopez for the story.
